Knee Replacement South Austin

Knee Replacement surgeon in South Austin

The knee is one of the most commonly injured joints in the body. In Austin, Texas, many patients come to Dr. David Savage with pain, swelling, or stiffness in the knee joint. Dr. Savage sees and treats sports injuries, joint pain, arthritis, and more.

Total knee replacement surgery removes the damaged and painful areas of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (lower leg bone). These areas are replaced with specially-designed metal and polyethylene plastic parts. Dr. Savage uses computer-assisted technology to help facilitate implant alignment, which is an important factor that may reduce joint wear and extend the life of the implant.

Recovery after knee replacement surgery can take several months, depending on your activity level, condition, and procedure. Physical therapy is essential to the healing process, helping to build your strength and stamina and restore function.

Knee replacement procedures include:

If knee pain is preventing you from doing the things you love and need to do, like biking, running, walking, and working, then it’s time to see an orthopedic doctor. Dr. Savage can help you regain full function and mobility in your joint and return to the activities you enjoy.
